A clip from my new edition of AELITA., the classic silent Russian Sci-fi film from 1924. Has a new soundtrack made of the altered and edited music of Philip Glass and new English intertitle screens.
The film was sourced from the best image available (the French Bach edition) for superior grayscale and detail. The new OyarsaQ DVD is PAL format, has subtitles in 8 languages (Dutch, Swedish, Portuguese, Slovene, Italian, German, French, Spanish), new menus and navigation, 2 soundtracks in 5.1 surround (1 in stereo), and eastereggs. Best of all are the newly added English intertitles.
This film is noted for having some wonderfully incredible Constructivist sets and costumes. The story incorporates themes of psychology and has a strong message promoting Communism. There is much humanity and humor, a lot of fun to watch, and even better now with the new elements.
